About the Author

I’m an author, a cover artist, a web designer and on occassion a formatter, which is a lot of hats to wear without even taking “wife” and “mother” into consideration. But I’ve been in love with books since I was three and I don’t see that changing any time soon. When I started writing seriously, I realized no one would buy a book that said Dull on the cover. Instead, I played on all the “opposite of Dull” jokes my friends made and became Elizabeth Sharp (The Elizabeth is for my grandmother).

When and Why did you start to write?

I was always telling stories, so no one in my family was surprised when I learned to write and immediately turned my new skill into a hobby. I dabbled for a couple decades, but once I got my first Kindle something changed. I learned about independent publishing, made a few new friends and launched on the road to publishing my first book. Nine books later I’m still going strong, and still proudly indie.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I mostly read other authors I know these days. I do read some others, and this year I’m doing a special reading challenge to expand my library, but I prefer to support my indie friends. I would read anything with Robert Jordan’s name on it, though.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

That I love mentoring the next wave. There’s always new writers waiting in the wings, and I love helping them to get their footing.

What are you working on now?

The shorter answer might be what I’m not working on. lol I have an adult paranormal about the four horsemen of the apocalypse, a spin of from my Forces of Nature series, a paranormal involving gypsy magic, and an anthology that will be published next month.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I used to think I was a pantser, but now I know better. I was always a plotter, just a little more subtle. I write out of order, fleshing out the big moments then piecing them together. The distance between A and B is far less indefinite than A to Z.
